The Vatican has announced that it would reopen its library to scholars on September 20, after a massive restoration that kept it shut for three years.

The 15th century building underwent renovations worth ¤25 million ($32 million) and will reopen its doors to about 4,000 researchers and 20,000 visitors each year. It holds more than 1.5 million books.
